U.S. Jets Just Intercepted 4 Russian Warplanes, 50 Miles Off The U.S. Coast

Potentially dangerous encounters between Russian and American warplanes continued this week off the coast of the U.S.

Radar on Wednesday detected two highly advanced Russian Sukhoi SU-35 fighter jets escorting two Russian TU-95 heavy bombers in the Alaskan Air Defense Zone. Two U.S. Air Force F-22 stealth fighter jets, on patrol in the area, moved to intercept. The Russian planes flew within 50 miles from Chariot, Alaska.

The Russian planes were unarmed and remained in international air space, a spokesperson for the North American Aerospace Defense Command told Fox.

The Alaskan Air Defense Zone is the area patrolled by U.S. fighters.

The Russian Air Force has become increasingly active in the area near Alaska in recent months. Russian planes flew close to Alaska at least four times in April.

The fighters were spotted just one day after President Trump and Vladimir Putin spoke on the phone. Trump told reporters that he did not discuss the flights with Putin.

The Sukhoi SU-35 is one of the world’s most advanced fighter planes. It is the frontline attack craft for the Russian Air Force, and considered superior to U.S. F-35 fighters by some observers. The TU-95 is a heavy bomber and missile platform that is capable of carrying nuclear weapons.
